Would it make sense to have a training/development program?

For new maintainers and experienced maintainers as well as / instead
of applicants?

(There are ways to do such things other than telling experienced people
"stop doing useful work, help these stupid people instead"; having
less experienced people assigned to help more experienced people can
pass on some knowledge and divide harder jobs, better than just leaving
inexperienced people to work on some new package no one cares that much
about; moving experienced people from one project they've been working
on for a while to a new project that they're less experienced with can
also have benefits -- letting new people gain the same experience the
oldbie had, and letting the oldbie broaden his/her horizons. This is
easier said than arranged, though)
